Hi Donald - you could try getting a piece of 4" plastic sewer pipe and sawing it up one side - should be big enough.

Seriously though - I have seen similar flexi-covers used for tidying cables on the back of computers and hi-fi systems. I think they are called cable tidies. You could try a PC supplier or the like. Last time I seen them was in the Cleeneze Catalogue.

You can normally get black plastic conduit for wires at most DIY stores Donald, should be fine as the wires are normally rooted away from excess heat
